Lane Fire's at 12 s Nationals and takes out 6th seed.

Sam Lane took out the 6th Seed Connor Heap from Christchurch 6-4 6-4 to reach the quarter finals of the National 12 boys singles played in Wellington today. Lane had defeated Heap last time they met in Timaru ,but Heap was coming off a solid Canterbury Easter junior result in the 12s.In a close first set Lane maintained control in the vital points showing great point construction to gain the "put away" shot.He found himself down 1-4 in the second set but fought back and stuck to his game plan to win 5 games on the "trot" to close out the set and the match 6-4.Lane now plays Top seed Alex Klintcharov tomorrow. Annabel Ellis seeded 7th in the Girls singles also reached the quarter finals with a very convincing win 6-0 6-0 over Emily Murchland of Wellington.Ellis will also play the top seed Pang Suwanaposee of Canterbury tomorrow. Ellis and partner Laura Overton from Southland "knocked " out 3rd seeds Rosie Cheng and Kelly Drew from Auckland to end a great day.At the time of writing Lawrence Darling was trying to battle into the quarter finals also playing Kyle Lee from Christchurch.
